Block Printing for Beginners

Tiffany will walk you through the process of learning to make unique and beautiful prints on fabric. It begins with learning how to use cutting tools, carve blocks and how to work with inks. From there, you'll explore how a single print can change when you employ a range of patterning techniques.

The second part of the class focuses on pattern making. You'll experiment with your carved blocks and then unleash your creativity on a yard of fabric. Tiffany will answer questions and provide tips throughout.

Tiffany's workshops are a relaxed space, where students are encouraged to forget about perfection, and embrace experimentation. Students are often amazed by how the same set of tools can create such a wide range of styles and images.

Once you've taken this class, you'll be able to print your own cards, bags, napkins, and if you sew, anything made with fabric.

This class is for anyone who enjoys colors, patterns and spending time on creative pursuits. No art experience necessary.

The class includes the following:

  • Instruction on carving, printing, patterns and inks.

  • All inks, cutting tools, brayers, paper, test fabric and ink plate are available for you to use during the class.

  • Tools to continue printing at home – cutting tools, ink, brayer and ink plate – are available for purchase at the class.

This class will be held in person at Wyldwood Creative on Sunday June 6th from 12pm - 3pm. We will be utilizing CDC recommendations for sanitizing stations. Students will be required to wear their mask for the entirety of class. 

Space is limited so sign up soon!
